From the moment they wake up, before they put on their makeup, they'll say a little prayer for you. (Sorry, we had to—who doesn't love My Best Friend's Wedding?) But seriously, some of our favorite wedding moments include a quiet moment with the bride and her bridesmaids, post makeup and dresses on, sharing spiritual words of wisdom with a prayer or Bible verse before the big aisle entrance. Here's a variety of Bible verses about faith, love and trust to share with your bridesmaids (or have them share with you) for a confidence and faith boost before you get married.

1 Corinthians 16:14: "Do everything in love."

1 Corinthians 13:13: "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

1 Corinthians 13:4-8: "Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends."

Joshua 1:9: "Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Psalms 9:11: "The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace."

1 John 4:18: "There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear."

Ephesians 4:2: "Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love."
